FantasyPros
For those who didn't panic and held onto Julio during his absence, you were certainly rewarded last week with a huge performance. Jones is a top-5 wide receiver for fantasy when he's healthy and he could put up another big performance against the Lions pass defense.Lindsay got the majority of the touches last week and he put up a dominant performance against the Patriots. While Lindsay certainly doesn't have as high of a ceiling with Gordon back in the lineup, he's still worth rolling out as a safe RB3 option in a tough matchup.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We got to see one of the greatest to ever play return in Week 6 and what a treat it was watching him rack up eight receptions for 137 yards and two touchdowns. He looked like he was 100 percent for the first time all season. It was a great matchup against the Vikings last week, and he'll get a similarly good one in Week 7. Wide receivers have seen a massive 65.3 percent target share against the Lions this year, which ranks second to only the Seahawks. With the way the Lions align, it would be Amani Oruwariye matching up against Jones most of the time, a second-year cornerback who's been pretty solid in coverage this year, though he's allowed 14.0 yards per reception in his coverage, which is one of the higher marks in the league. Jones also moves into the slot 26 percent of the time, which is golden for his matchup, as the Lions have been destroyed by slot receivers all year. Look, you're starting Jones as a WR1 every week now that he's proven to be healthy.So, apparently, Gordon had strep throat last week and it was the reason for missing the game. He's still facing a possible three-game suspension by the league, so it's a situation we need to pay attention to as the week goes on. Lindsay stepped in and played well in his absence, racking up 101 yards on the ground against a tough Patriots run defense. Do the Broncos move towards more of a timeshare with Lindsay back to full health? Against the Chiefs, they'll want to utilize their running backs a lot. Their opponents have chosen a run play on 47.2 percent of plays, which ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. In terms of weighted opportunity, running backs average the 10th-most against the Chiefs, and though the numbers haven't been huge to this point, the level of competition has been weak. Per Football Outsiders DVOA, the Chiefs are still the sixth-worst run defense in the league. The question is: Can the Broncos keep the game close enough to keep getting touches to their running backs? Six different running backs have totaled 62 or more yards on the ground, while seven running backs have totaled at least 25 yards through the air. If Gordon plays, you have to assume he gets the majority of work, including pass-game and goal-line usage, which is important, so consider him a somewhat sturdy RB2, though the 18.8-point team-implied total is worrisome. Lindsay didn't even get a single target last week, which worries me about his floor. Lindsay also played this team twice last year without Gordon and finished two games with just 68 scoreless yards on 18 carries. He's more of an RB3/flex play this week who carries gamescript concerns, as he ran just 11 routes in Gordon's absence last week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jones looked like his old self last week with 8 receptions for 137 yards and 2 touchdowns. He should be a WR1 against a bad Lions secondary.Gordon's absence in Week 6 gave Lindsay a chance to be the featured back and he responded with 23 rushes for 101 yards. He should be a flex option at home against Kansas City, even if Gordon III is back in Week 7.
